A grassroots pro-family group has joined the growing list of organizations and individuals who oppose Obama's selection of Chuck Hagel to become the next secretary of defense.

The Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) is echoing the opinion of Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis -- that the former Nebraska senator "will say anything to get a job."

Lafferty, Andrea (TVC)TVC executive director Andrea Lafferty contends Hagel should not have apologized for opposing radical homosexual activist James Hormel in 1998, when the Hormel Foods heir was nominated by Bill Clinton to be ambassador to Luxembourg ( related article). TVC spearheaded the effort to expose the nominee 15 years ago.

"I went to the Hormel library in San Francisco and spent three days there bringing forth all of this filth and disgusting stuff that was in this man's library," Lafferty tells OneNewsNow.

"And because of that information, his nomination was killed 15 years ago. And now Hagel's apologizing for it? We have a guy, Chuck Hagel, who will say anything to get a job, and he is apologizing for speaking the truth 15 years ago."

The TVC executive adds that Hagel is clearly out of the mainstream for now favoring homosexuals serving openly in the military, and also in his opposition to Israel. Her group is hopeful Senate Democrats will present enough opposition to block his appointment.
